Due to the great success and response we had to opening over Christmas and New Year last year we are doing it all again! Our aim once again is to offer you the most relaxing and stress free time we possibly can. The Mount Haven Hotel is ideally situated on the west coast of Cornwall with stunning views over the historic St. Michaels Mount and across to Penzance and Newlyn. The hotel is renowned locally and indeed nationally for having a relaxing atmosphere with the very best of locally sourced food for us to show off to you! The focus for us this Christmas is quality, no tat and an honest Cornish traditional time with your enjoyment at the fore of our thoughts.
The running order is below for you to review and get taken away with.
